Hydrating Berry Popsicles

We have a major heat wave going on in Pittsburgh. It’s been really hot, and really humid. I decided to make some homemade popsicles that would help us beat the heat! The best part is that these popsicles only contain 3 ingredients; berries, coconut water, and a teeny bit of raw honey.



I wanted to make them look fun, so I froze the different berries into 3 layers for a tri-color look. Brings back memories of being at the pool as a kid.



For this recipe I used organic blueberries, organic strawberries, and organic blackberries. I personally felt like the strawberry and blackberry flavors were the best, but Bill really liked the blueberry layer as well.



These popsicles are a bit time consuming, because I strained the seeds from the blended berries, and you have to freeze one layer at a time. Once you have filled the popsicles molds with your last flavor, then you will have to keep them in the freezer for several hours until they are completely frozen. I made them later in the day, so we didn’t touch them until the following day.



This recipe is really fun for kids as well, but beware, the berries will be messy and stain if they drip, so this treat is best enjoyed outside!


These popsicles are puppy-approved đŸ˜‰

  1. Place the blackberries, one cup of coconut water, and two teaspoons of honey into a blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the blackberry seeds, and set aside.
  3. Repeat this process two more times with the strawberries and blueberries, using 1 cup of coconut water per flavor of berry, and 2 teaspoons of honey.
  4. Be sure that all three flavors are strained into separate bowls.
  5. Pour the blueberries in the first 3rd of your popsicle molds, and freeze until solid.
  6. Repeat with the strawberries and blackberries.
  7. Once you have filled the last flavor into your molds, freeze overnight, or for at least 6 hours.


We have a popsicle mold that uses loose sticks, and they are secured in place by the lid to the mold. When the strawberry layer was mostly frozen, I removed the lid, and just let the sticks sit in the mostly frozen mixture so that I would be able to fill the final layer with the sticks in place. This was a bit tricky, but worked fine in the end.
